How do I take apart an iPhone 3gs and are any parts compatible with the iPhone 3g? If not how could I make them work. i.e. desolder component and replace with corresponding part.

    I have fixed a few iPhones for people I know that busted the glass or cracked the LCD. For one repair I ordered a LCD and glass with digitizer for 3g, thinking both were bad. Turned out I only needed the LCD. Now I have a 3gs that has a broken glass screen and considered putting the screen and digitizer from the 3g I had leftover on it. Problem is the connections #1 and #2 are a different size but only by a hair. Thought about transferring connectors to fit. Any thoughts?

    I wanted to put a 3g LCD and touch screen, digitizer assembly on a 3gs. Could this work?

  • prioritycont Aug 20, 2010

    Thanks. That is what I needed to know.

First off what is it you are trying to do?No the parts aren't interchangeable there are a ton of differences between the 2 although they are similar externally. As far as desoldering goes you would have to be really good at it and have the right equipment to even consider it, although there is nothing really worth doing it in my opinion. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

    The home button and the vibration motor should be interchangeable but as far as internal parts, they are not.

    is the glass screen the only thing bad? Is the lcd underneath it good? If so just replace the glass. As far as the digitizer's they are NOT interchangeable at all to any degree. If you did switch it out it wouldn't think you were pressing where you were.
    Thank you and good luck with the repair,
    Lee

Just how can you the distinction between an iphone 3g and an iphone 3gs?


Yes there's a distinction between the iPhone 3G screen/digitizer and the iPhone 3Gs screen/digitizer. The glass is exactly the same however the cable for the digitizer relationship is not. You can inform the once the iPhone is opened by you that the link is various. The unlock iphone 3gs connection has a broader bill in the center and can not match.

So u<b><span>nlock and jailbreak foriPhone 4, 3G and 3Gs</b>becamemuch more easier, however the good thing is that iPhone 4,3G,3Gs can beunlocked and jailbroken on the iOS 4.0.2/4.1 or 3.1.3 at the moment, becausethe current jailbreaking & unlocking tools are compatible with iOS4.0.2/4.1 or 3.1.3. Unlocking Ltd. has introduced a fresh iPhone unlocksoftware that will allow users to explore their Apple iPhone's customizationand application capabilities. Specifically, it can "unlock and jailbreak iPhone4.2.1, 3G 3Gs and iPhone 4 4.2.1."</span> The veryfirst unlocking software for iPhone was unlocked by iPhone Unlocking Ltd inJuly 2007.

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

After changing digitizer my 3gs is not calibrated. When I want to press a number for example, it takes the one next to it. Any advice?


the screen/digitizer you got may be for a 3G rather than 3GS compare the connector with that of your old one to see. the 3GS has a black plastic middle, the 3G one has more metal pins.
